Osprey Hanging Out To Dry

There are several established Osprey nests in Everglades City.  Incubating is in full swing at each of them.

Near one of the nests, I found the incubating Osprey’s mate perched nearby on guard duty and air-drying.

Someone got a bath or hopefully had just caught and delivered a fish to it’s mate in the nest!

A little flapping to help speed up the drying….

After all the flapping, it was back to guard duty and sunning.

Beautiful & Refreshed
